Thermo King’s environmentally conscious SB-210RR+ and SB-310RR+ refrigerated rail units help track unattended cargo and are designed for optimized reliability, performance, fuel efficiency and cargo protection. Longer battery life, 65-amp alternators, electronic door switches and protection packages help to safeguard the refrigeration units from damage in transit.

The larger SB-310RR+ refrigerated rail unit contains a specially-tuned engine and additional BTU capacity than the SB-210RR+ unit; option packages allow for upgraded alternators, improved telematics and, depending on the package, either noise dampening technology or curbside exhaust extenders.

Both Rail Ready units rely on an Electronic Throttling Valve that uses a microprocessor to help trailers get to optimum temperature faster while conserving fuel; the ETV is designed to eliminate temperature spikes for extended product life and help provide worry-free operation for long-distance unattended travel.

The units also include a rail-specific heavy-duty fuel processor system to help increase performance and prevent breakdowns; sensors also monitor fuel levels and reduce cost call charges.
